The General Data Protection Regulation is meant to strengthen data protection for all EU residents by putting control over personal data in the hands of the people themselves. But GDPR 2018 doesn’t just affect Europeans. It requires companies all over the world that process data about any EU citizen to comply too.
Between now and May 25th, organizations everywhere must get to know their data inside and outside, backwards and forwards.
To gain full clarity of the data an organization possesses, it must have access to the associated metadata, for only metadata can tell us where data comes from, where it resides in all the different systems, how it’s being used and by whom.
Metadata is key to governing your data. And if you can’t govern your data,
well, you’re simply not going to be GDPR compliant.
